OnlyOneOU and JTE remained tied in Friday Locks and if you look way down the track I'm still in the race but you have to use binoculars to see me. Of course the same can also be said of me in the official pick'em contest sponsored by Sooner Legends In & Suites. This week JTE is giving his pick on the OSU/Kansas State game, OnlyOne has the SEC showdown between Florida and Vanderbilt Bama and LSU and I'm picking sides on Texas Tech and Texas. 

Last Week: 2-0

 Season 11-7

Stanford   (-21) @ Oregon State

I'm stickin' with the girl who brung me.  Stanford has been a covering machine and I see no reason they can't do so again against a terrible Oregon State team.  Even if it is on the road.   Oklahoma State (-21) vs. Kansas State       I just don't see anyway the Wildcats can hang with O-State unless Weeden, Blackmon, and Randle are all involved in some kind of pre-game accident that prevents them from playing.     
Last Week: 1-1 Season: 10-8

Alabama  (-4.5) vs LSU        

One of the biggest games of the year will most likely decide who plays for the MNC. With the defenses these teams will be putting on the field, I give Bama the nod simply because they are at home.

Florida (-13) vs Vanderbilt    

Florida is a young team that has had a tough road before hitting Vandy. I expect the Gators to have learned much up to this point of the season and should be ready to finally get another win at home.

Last Week: 1-1     Season: 7-11
Texas Tech (+14) at Texas No, this isn't a hater pick. I really expect Texas to win this game but I'm also banking on the Red Raiders bouncing back a bit this week offensively. I say Tech keeps it close.      South Carolina (-5) at Arkansas The Hogs have been dangerously playing with fire with close calls at Mississippi and Vanderbilt. USC is just the type of team to make them pay for slow starts.
